SpaceX announced on Monday that Starlink satellite internet service surpassed 1 million subscribers.

“Starlink now has more than 1,000,000 active subscribers – thank you to all customers and members of the Starlink team who contributed to this milestone,” SpaceX tweeted Monday.

Starlink is a constellation of satellites in Low-Earth Orbit (LEO) that provides broadband internet service in areas where terrestrial options are unavailable or lacking. The service is available around the world including much of Canada, Mexico, parts of the U.S. and the Caribbean, Chile, Brazil, parts of Western Europe, Japan, Australia, and New Zealand.

SpaceX has been consistently launching batches of Starlink satellites this year, with the latest launch on Saturday, Dec. 17 lifting 54 satellites to orbit. SpaceX has launched around 3,600 satellites for the constellation and independent tracking reports there are more than 3,200 in operation.
